Some of you that have been around a while, may remember my Dollhouse posts. If you are interested, click on the link in my sidebar to go back and look. Anyway, as part of our downsizing process, I sold my mid century modern ranch.
I took these photos before it was picked up. I loved creating this.
I built the kitchen and appliances from scratch, along with the table, and living room furniture.
I loved my egg carton fireplace!
And the hardwood floors.
I think my favorite things are the couch and chair I made.
I still have my big dollhouse. In fact, I’m taking it out to AZ with me! Daughter #2 has built a small dollhouse and I think we will have fun working on these and sharing ideas.
Hope you enjoyed this little look back. Good bye, little house!
My readers are just the best! Roseanne just left this comment and I had to share with you all.
Hi Katy! I’m a little late to the party but ready to start cutting. Just an FYI – it takes 22 FQ pieces to make a 60×80 quilt. How do I know – we did the math!! Of course, I have a 20 piece bundle so I’m going to supplement it from stash, and will start cutting right away. Such a fun QAL. ~smile~ Roseanne
How great is that? Thanks so much, Roseanne!
Since I’m sending a second post, I thought I’d share this as well….
Two new dies will be released today with special pricing! Click here for details.
Thanks for all of your kind thoughts yesterday. Our power came back earlier than predicted, so that was nice. I have clean freezers and that feels good.
No finishes today! But I do have a small start. Sometimes, you just need to stitch. This new toy arrived from Accuquilt last week. Isn’t it cute?
It came with two useful dies.
So I picked a small project to try it out. it works just as well as the bigger Accuquilt GO! Cutter. I can see grabbing this little guy for travel projects. I’m also planning on letting the grands use this one!
It was going to be a mug rug, but it grew.
Then it needed borders so it grew again.
I’m thinking about hand quilting this. We’ll see.
If you have an Accuquilt Studio Die Cutter, studio dies are half off until September 15th with the code, 50STUDIO.
At least that’s how I feel when the power goes out. We had some heavy storms here Tuesday night and we are still waiting for power to be restored. Hopefully, some time today we will be back in business.
This is a short walk from my house. Here is our backyard.
Another yard near ours.
It wasn’t Ida, so I’m not complaining. I’m very thankful that Daughter #1 had an empty freezer we could use. We are keeping a careful eye on water levels and I’ll be cleaning the refrigerated and freezer. God is good.
Hopefully I’ll be back to quilty content tomorrow.
